The following recipe is taken directly from the NRA Members' Wild Game Cookbook, Second Edition. to buy your very own copy of the cookbook, visit the NRA Program Materials Center.
• 1 pound venison, soaked in salt and vinegar water overnight, cut into stew-sized pieces
In large skillet, brown venison to remove excess fat. Prepare vegetables and place on bottom of crock pot. Next place venison and seasoning on top of vegetables. Cover just to top of meat with water. Cook on high setting four to five hours or low setting six to eight hours, or until vegetables are tender. Add dumplings during last 20 to 25 minutes of cooking, turning crock put on high and bringing stew to full boil.
• 2 1/4 cups Bisquick biscuit mix
Mix dry ingredients, then add milk slowly, stirring until mixture is uniform (will be very thick). Drop by large spoonfuls into boiling stew. Cook covered for 15 to 25 minutes until centers are done. Do not over stir. Dumplings will thicken gravy.
Serve with fried apples or green salad.
